How to use the Eisenhower 40% Silver Dollar Melt Value Calculator.
First decide what method you will be using to indicate the amount of Eisenhower 40% silver
dollars to calculate. You can enter your amounts either by the total quantity of Eisenhower
dollars, the total face value of your 40% Ike dollars, or by the total weight of your Eisenhower
silver dollar collection. You could also use a combination of methods depending on how your Ike
silver dollars are stored.
The first option, showing the picture of a single Eisenhower 40% silver dollar, is for entering
an exact count of 40% silver dollars. Use the text box on the right to enter a number
representing the total quantity of 40% Ikes that you wish to know the silver melt value of. As
an alternative, you can simply click on the Eisenhower silver dollar picture, or its link, to
increase the value in its text box by 1. The calculator will automatically update the Total
Silver Value (in red), whenever a change is made to the amounts in any of the text boxes.
Your next five options are for entering your amounts by the face value of your 40% Eisenhower
silver dollars. There are $1, $10, $50, $100, and $1000 options each representing 1, 10, 50, 100,
and 1,000 Ike silver dollars respectively. This option works well if your silver Eisenhower
dollars are stored in canvas bags. You can also use decimal values for partial bags. For example,
a value of 1.5 entered into the $50 Face Value Text Box would be equal to a $75 face value.
Your final four options allow you to calculate the melt value of your Eisenhower 40% silver
dollars by weighing them. You can choose to weigh by either ounces, pounds, grams, or kilograms.
Just enter a whole number or decimal representing the total weight in the appropriate weight
text box. If you are weighing your 40% silver dollars inside a container or bag, be sure to
subtract the weight of your container first. Do note that these are not Troy ounces or pounds.
They are U.S. standard ounces and pounds (a.k.a. Avoirdupois).
The Total Silver Value is figured based on the U.S. Dollar amount displayed in the Silver
Price text box. You could also use one of the other major world currencies available in the
drop-down menu located underneath the prices. The default price is updated frequently during normal
trading hours. You may adjust the Silver Price to indicate how much you'd like to pay per
ounce for the silver content in any collection of U.S. Eisenhower 40% silver dollars. This can
help you in figuring the maximum bid you should submit for an online 40% Eisenhower silver dollar
The Eisenhower silver dollar calculator determines total silver value and total silver content
derived from the measure of silver contained in uncirculated Eisenhower 40% silver dollars that
have not suffered any wear. A 40% Ike that has some wear from being handled may not have as much
silver. There is an option to supply a percentage of that wear in the "Amount of Wear"
text box. A value larger than the default of 0 (zero), will reduce the total silver value and
total silver weight results accordingly.
